Lightning Protection - Surge Protection
BSEN 62305 Status
Electronic system protection was included as a requirement of lightning systems in 2008 with the introduction of BS EN 62305. The standard now combines the external lightning protection system with the buildings internal components. It is now recognised that the electromagnetic effects of lightning related activity can cause heavy damage to electric/electronic systems & equipment resulting business downtime.
Surge Protection Devices (SPD’s) are now required under BS EN 62305. They form the internal lightning protection system by preventing lightning currents from entering a building via incoming services and reduces the risk of damage to electrical and electronic equipment and critical systems from transient electronic surges.
LPS can offer advice, supply only or supply and installation of a full range of surge protection devices.
